Children & Families

Holy Cross parish is made up of families from many different countries around the world, and we wish to help all of them to feel active members. We would particularly like to ensure that the children and teenagers of these families can be full members of our parish life. To help realise this vision a small team of volunteers has been formed to develop a programme of activities for children, which supplements the weekly catechism classes run by the Sisters of St Joseph (see under “Religious Education”).

A key part of this programme is the family Mass, which takes place at 6.30 pm every Sunday, which children of all ages are welcome to attend. During this Mass there is a separate liturgy for children aged 2 to 6, while older children have an opportunity to participate in the liturgy of the word. At several times during the year children gather for other activities such as preparation for Easter and Christmas, and there is an annual retreat. These activities are for children of all ages.
